Reading games support linguistic learners

Linguistic lovers learn best through speaking, listening, writing and reading. They learn to think and problem-solve whilst developing relationships and expressing their feelings.

Toys that encourage language and help with early literacy development

Our range of reading toys will equip your little linguist learners with the skills required to develop the language skills required for early literacy.

Some of our favourite linguistic tools include those that allow children to use their imagination to think up stories and write letters to express their themselves to special people around them.

Our Dear Little Letterbox and Post box make it possible for both reluctant and enthusiastic learners to develop a love of learning to write letters as they make up notes and pictures to send to Mum and Dad and even to the Tooth Fairy or Santa. Story Stones are also perfect for developing literacy skills such as retelling, creating sentences, grammar and writing.

Uppercase and Lowercase Alphabet stamps add some sensory play to learning letter recognition and early literacy skills. Using ink, kinetic sand and playdough, even little hands can have fun stamping with the easy-hold handle on each stamp. Set them challenges such as making up their own name, or simply choose letter to stamp and get them thinking of things that start with that letter.
